Why Security Tokens will Dominate the Crypto Space in 2018

How's it going everyone It's Austin over here at the Crypto Playhouse

If, like myself, you were heavily invested in the 2017 crypto space, you probably did very well But it's 2018 The SEC is coming, regulations are coming, the condition of ICOs is going to change alot So today we're going to take a look at how things are going to be different, and something we've been talking about alot: security tokens [opening music] Before we jump into security tokens, the first thing we need to address is: what is a security? According to the SEC (info pulled from investopedia

com), "A security is a fungible, negotiable financial instrument that holds some type of monetary value It represents an ownership position a publicly traded corporation" Is that really important to us in the crypto space? Under that definition, no, but we have to know is that the issue isn't with the security tokens that are out there, because they really aren't out there yet! The issue is with utility tokens, that at the time of launch truly have no utility The thing of it is that if there is a new ICO you are launching or investing in, if and when SEC comes through and they analyze these projects and that ICO is bringing in money to issue tokens but there is no use for the tokens (no live mainnet, no test network, no true reason for the token to exist), the reality is you will be found to be investing in a security But the thing that a lot of crypto investors don't realize is, that if you as a consumer are invested in a security platform and the SEC determines the platform is a security, NOT a utility token, you as a consumer can be held responsible as well as the company, being penalized and forced to pay fines

I believe 2018 will be a year for the advancement of tokens, and a split from the usual utility token idea You may be asking yourself, "if utility tokens are at risk and securities are going to be important over the coming years, how do i get my hands on some security tokens?" The reality is that at this point you probably can't! But there is a lot on the horizon! You've likely heard of Polymath before They're a big name in the crypto space but not too many people seem to know too much about the backworkings of the project Polymath is currently an ERC-20 based token, and they are building a platform for a new standardized method of launching a security token Currently we have the ERC-20 format, which is a tokenized asset on the ethereum blockchain, and they will be adapting it to the "ST-20" which when completed will be a new launching platform for security token projects that want to launch an ICO but are underfunded or too early in development for a true utility token

Along with Polymath, we've seen another new project: Securitize This is 50% ownership under SPiCE VC, a Venture capital group that has invested in multiple blockchain projects Securitize seems to be a similar layout to the Polymath concept They are offering people who are launching ICOs to more effectively hit the market as a security But securitize seems to give a more expansive set of tools, and much more help with the ico set up itself, much more than simply the ERC-20 "ST-20" smart contract

But we must remember when dealing with a new market and SEC regulations there are some things to be considered regarding trading these assets Unlike the traditional exchanges where we can jump in and trade our utility tokens for other cryptos or fiat, mixing that with security tokens wouldn't be feasible So a number of different groups that have been playing around with the idea of a security based trading platform Currently the tZero project is the biggest of these, which is actually owned under Overstock, and have a few crossover advisors from Poly math and vice versa It will essentially act as a highly liquid security token trading marketplace

This is great because one of the biggest issues I have experienced as a crypto trader is that if you aren't trading the absolute top market cap tokens, that liquidity is simply not there With security tokens, we will open the space to higher level investors and greater levels of liquidity Now granted, while you won't have as many average consumers participating in the ICOs themselves or the presale of these security tokens, the ability to purchase and trade them will be much more feasible than trading some of the smaller no name utility tokens floating around out there Just to be clear, utility tokens are not dead!!! They aren't going anywhere, but these new ICO's that are launching will be facing much more stringent restrictions, and I believe the security token concept will truly be expanded on in 2018, becoming a big part of what we see in crypto And as we move into 2018 there seems to be a relatively small number of groups that are moving forward on this security space

One of those few groups is the "Security Token Partners" headed up by Mario Pazos We will be sitting down with him next week and doing an interview with him! He's a major investor in the blockchain space and a driving force in the forward motion of the security revolution in cryptos This should prove to be very interesting as we see why he thinks securities will be a huge breakthrough in the crypto space!

Smart Cash- 100 Cryptos in 100 Days – The Best Cryptocurrency News

what's going on guys this is V Wells and I'm coming at you with a hundred kryptos in a hundred days this is the number thirteen episode out of a hundred and we're gonna be talking about smart cash today so smart cash is a crypto currency that is essentially trying to come out and allow you know smart voting a more decentralized network it's gonna allow fundraising through the actual platform itself as well for certain ideas you have to help smart cash grow each coin that you hold will be worth a vote and these type of things it's also a coin in chicken steak so you can get what's called smart rewards which is essentially your awards for staking and anytime anybody who gets over a thousand smart cash gets paid every 30 days after the 25th and that's that's pretty huge you get really good rewards I made about 4% in one month of a growth from staking my very first month of doing that and the future of smart cash which is hoping to bring it into the mainstream market and make it a highly usable cryptocurrency is what's gonna be called smart instant pay which is going to be basically a smart card what is gonna be called and it's like a debit card that takes cryptocurrency or a smart cash and turns it directly into spendable funds on a card where you can spend them anywhere a credit card or debit card is accepted so that is gonna really help boost main crypto into the mainstream I think there are other projects that have the same idea in mind there's 10x there's Sentra and there's a couple more so I mean I'm hoping some of these will actually get released like they're supposed to and help crypto become more mainstream and allow you to spend it easier a lot of people don't want to spin their crypto yet but I think in the future once it's accepted more broadly I think more people will start spending it especially when the price stabilizes a bit too however for now something like this would be great being able to spend some cryptos you see the average block times gonna be 55 seconds the maximum supplies five billion that's pretty high but right now there's only a 14 billion out in circulation so they're keeping a lot of those for the staking in other rewards I'm not sure what's gonna happen once they're all out and in in circulation however the rewards is gonna work or if they're gonna lower it by time I really haven't looked too far through this coin and done a lot of research the reason I'm behind it and the reason I invested some into it is because somebody I greatly respect from the crypto world named the og brach nuts Nona esteem accom has brung nuts he's a heavy proponent of smart cash and this is a guy who's very conservative in terms of what he invests in he doesn't invest in that many coins and if you look at his theme wallet right here he's got a hundred and five thousand steam worked a hundred and eighty six thousand dollars so I mean I think he knows what he's talking about to a great extent and he's a very skeptical investor so the reason I got into smart cash without really diving in deep was because oh gee Brock nuts recommended it and I fully trust him with a lot of crypto because I know that he's an OG you know like he's been in the game like me for a long time so Oh G brung us a big shout out to you thank you for telling me about smart cash I'm glad I heard about it and now let's just take a look at the price and the charts and stuff it's only eight cents a piece right now with a 66 million dollar market cap now look at this chart this is just ridiculous it was under a penny back in August had a big boost up to 16 cents and another dip but look at this pump right here we're talking smart cash hit two dollars and 80 cents guys and now it's eight cents apiece that is more than 30 time discrepancy and a lot of people might be scared of that but I like to think that good projects will bounce back even after big losses and if you see it's been on a huge downturn ever since it went back from that all-time high of 280 all the way back down the 91 cents 85 cents who stood back up to almost $2 and ever since it kind of stabilized around the 30 cent mark there for a little bit but it's just been slowly falling with a with some of the other kryptos in the price of Bitcoin but it'll be great to see it bounce back I really hope that it can because I'm up to about 20,000 smart cash now I just bought some more today actually seeing the very low pricing so we'll see what happens with it it's very exciting project again thanks to hope you brought nuts for shout it out to me and I'll dive a little deeper into it once I do a little bit more research we're just getting the basics of 100 coins done in a hundred days and after that we're gonna start doing some more intermediate to advanced videos but we're starting out more of a beginner level and working our way up because there is a lot of new people in the cryptocurrency space thanks a lot if you watch this video I'd greatly appreciate it thank you for any support or follows subscribes I should say and lights make sure to subscribe because as soon as we hit a thousand we're gonna start doing crypto giveaways every weekend guys so appreciate everybody tuning in and watching any comments that you might want to leave and I'll see you guys on the moon take it easy

Oil Thru $70. Berkshire Dismissed Cryptos and Missed the Quarter!

[MUSIC PLAYING] Hey, good morning It's John Gillin at your morning NewsWire at Stansberry Research

We've got Monday, May 7 Global markets– they've picked up the pace where we left off on Friday A bit better this morning Germany– interesting Factory orders were weak

A lot of those economic data coming out of that country have been lousy over the last couple of months But stocks are making a five-month high I think a lot of that has to do with the euro has been weak of late, and they are the leader in exports That being said, dollar is stronger against both euro and yen this morning West Texas crude is above $70 this morning

Iran nuke deal– that either gets dealt with on the 12th of this month, the 16th– I've heard both dates The Saudis are very happy to see oil go to 80 Iran said 60 to 65 would be suitable Who cares what they think? What happened to all of our energy independence desires? Shale supposedly had an open spigot, and here we are at $70 It's called inflation, folks

Don't be naive US-China trade– that's crickets over the weekend There's a lot more to come, and China's yuan– their currency– has been weaker of late Interesting how that happens Mr

Putin was sworn in over the weekend for another six year term He got 77% of the vote I assume the other 23% went to Siberia That was a real nail-biter Tuesday, China trade data comes out

Important This week supposedly we'll get something from the NAFTA negotiations– a breakthrough Don't get on the edge of your chair Deals this morning– Nestle and Starbucks are getting together in a business deal with coffee It's interesting because there's massive amounts of money that are being transferred, but it is not one taking over the other

International Flavors IFF is buying a company– an Israeli– again, for a big number About $8 billion Blackstone is buying Gramercy Park GPT, which is a REIT Berkshire Hathaway had their Warren-palooza over the weekend, and they also reported numbers on Friday afternoon They lost money, but the stock is up a bit

They talked about their Apple position, and they talked a lot about how cryptos don't make any sense to them because they're late 80s and early 90-year-old men who have done wonderfully, but how are they going to understand cryptos? Other earnings this morning CTSH missed Taiwan Semi missed Disney over the weekend– their Avengers movie has taken in over a billion dollars at the box office Man, are we dull people

Fed speak– a lot of that this week Microsoft's developers conference Morgan Stanley's got an energy conference, and then throughout the week, you get another six to seven big conferences So everybody will be yapping There's also $73 billion in bond for the treasury refunding

Friday, what happened– optically, 39% in unemployment That looks great But you had a 4% move in Apple You had a 5% move from McDonald's, and then all the other catch-ups

Triple M, Caterpillar, Boeing, UTX, all on the Dow Then behind that was consumer names– discretionary and staples They're not leadership stocks That was short covering The bulls are going to tell you that tax cuts, stimulus, has not kicked in yet

I believe that But they think that a market that's moved higher, arguably, for the last 109 months has a lot further to go I'll take the other side of that I think it's still time to sell rips and buy oils stocks, because oil continues to trade higher, and we're still stuck in a range Anyway, everybody have a good Monday

The End of Bitcoin Mining – Crypto Mining is DEAD

I am officially done with Bitcoin mining cryptocurrency mining all of that welcome back to the channel guys I'm Bruce Wayne and that was my dramatic intro to ending my cryptocurrency mining career I've had so many ups and downs with this crypto mining business that it's just not worth the hassle anymore and I'm just giving it up on top of that the weather has changed a lot in the last two weeks two weeks ago it was freezing almost every single freaking day in my office and now I don't even need to turn on the heat I can just open a window the weather is fine now is bearable this building isn't well insulated but it doesn't even matter anymore I'm happy to shut off all my miners and I'm gonna get ready to sell them on eBay if you want to buy them just to go on eBay and you can buy them there luckily I kept the boxes for everything I'm one of those guys that hoards all this crap so I'm gonna be selling I think I'll be selling two of these I still got the box if you keep the boxes when you resell them you get a better price I'm gonna be selling two of them and I think that I'm gonna keep the PC so I can do some live streaming I have some live streaming ideas that I want to test out so that's that now I want to go over the main reasons why crypto just sucks just really freaking sucks first it's not profitable I just plain and simple it's just not profitable there's actually there's no more reasons to mine unless you have free electricity I keep I keep going over that I think like that's my mantra right now just free electricity you can mind anything else don't do it it's not even worth it for the heat that's the main number one reason why that's just getting into the meat of it number two nice hash sux ballz I made a lot of videos on nice hash and it is still the number one mining places to go to start mining and whatnot but nice house nice hash sucks major balls I'm serious they're programming no it is easy to use but for whatever reason it keeps crashing on me I have to reset my computer like a hundred times in the last in the last two years I probably had to reset my computer a thousand times and that just gets so annoying I want to show you the grep let me show you the graph of my mining output all right just hang on real quick alright so this is just gonna be a quick screenshot of the graph for my nice hash miners and you can see that there's a lot of dips where the the miner would just crash and just stop working normally I'm able to catch it because I get sent notifications but recently they've just been crashing so much that I just I just couldn't handle anymore you know it's not even worth like the few extra dollars that I get every like I think it was like 40 bucks a month 30 bucks a month that I could be making from this and that's the second reason why I'm stopped I'm gonna stop mining the third reason why I'm stopping crypto mining is because I can sell all of my computer parts and make some type of return from it when it comes to just my GPUs I made a full 100 percent return on investments with that and if I sell it I'll be making a lot more but with this crap right here this crap this is done like I can't I'm not gonna make any types of returns on this unless crypto goes back to unless Bitcoin goes back to $20,000 these I'm just gonna throw into the garbage I'm 95% sure that the entire world won't even be able to make a profit with an s and minor s9 right now is just this thing just sucks up so much electricity it's not even funny like if you were to run this even if you had like 6 cents per kilowatt-hour you'll still go broke that is just so frustrating guys it's just so frustrating and the fourth reason why I'm done crypto mining is because it's just time to move on I'm leaving all the stress of crypto and the crypto community has put upon me and put up and I put upon myself so I'm just gonna leave all that behind 2019 you know this is a brand new year and I don't want to be in that type of space anymore it's just too emotionally physically draining so this is it guys this is the end of the crypto mining journey it's over I'm done I'm out the game this these are just gonna be antiques sitting behind me already build a shelf and just keep them there it looks pretty dope in the background but I want to thank all you guys for following me along on this journey you know it's been a crazy two years straight crypto mining for like I was probably mining for at least half of the half of the two years all the Wynn crypts that went all the way up and then when it started to climb down that's when I started to stop and I gave it one more chance but it's just it just wasn't worth it at the end I get a lot of questions from you guys if you guys should still be mining cloud mining or Hardware mining just don't do it there's a lot of other things out there that you can be doing that's worth more worth more of your time but yeah it is the end is the finale this is the final final season if you've made it all the way with me give me a thumbs up give me a like man I stuck through it I grinded it out as hard as I could and if you're brand new to the channel you're brand new to the channel and you still want to see all this crypto mining stuff I think you guys have to unsubscribe but if you want to see a lot more fun stuff on this channel I'm still talking about investing I I'm still gonna be doing videos about investing I'll most likely will still be doing a lot of risky investments out there just because it's fun to throw money up in the air sometimes and make it rain thank you guys don't forget to subscribe if you want to see more content like that don't forget to leave a comment and congratulate me on retiring from crypto mining and I'll check you guys in the next one I'm gonna go drink away all this pain right now bye
